Food Allowed in the Law Library!

BIG BIG NEWS ALERT!! You can now EAT IN THE LIBRARY. Yes, you read that correctly. Come study and eat. We trust that y'all will do this in a respectful manner - put your trash where it belongs, and don't eat loudly in quiet areas. If this new policy goes well, we hope to continue it for years to come.

You simply need to be registered for Lexis Advance.
Registering for Summer Access
  • If you're already a registered Lexis Advance user, you don't need to do anything else to get Summer Access. Your current ID is all you need.
  • If you aren't a registered Lexis Advance user yet (or aren't sure), contact Alyce Perry at
Support throughout the Summer
Your school's LexisNexis® Account Executive, Alyce Perry,, is available to you during the summer for training and support. Feel free to contact him or her early to let them know your summer research goals.
